Leona Rita Olson


OLSON, Leona Rita
1923 – 2015

Our beloved mother left us on March 12, 2015 to rejoin many loved ones whom she has missed dearly. Leona led a beautiful, loving, and faith-filled life, devoted to her husband and ten children, and spread joy among others everywhere she went. She was gracious, courageous, and giving for all her 92 years. She will remain undyingly loved, sadly missed, and forever remembered.

She is survived by her sister, Bernice Lema (nee McPherson), and Bernice’s husband, Emile; sons: James (Sherri), Roy (Nancy Weber), Jack; daughters: Lois Conger, Marilynn (Timothy Collinge) Olson, Elaine (Tom) Reid, Maureen (David) Looney; thirteen grandchildren; eight great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by six siblings; husband Arthur; sons: Richard, Douglas, Thomas, Marvin; son-in-law Doug Conger, and daughter-in-law Mary Ann.

Our greatest thanks to our sister Lois, Leona’s eldest daughter, who, in her own home, tenderly cared for Mother for several years as dementia precluded Mom’s independence.

Cremation has taken place and a Celebration of Life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations to the Hemophilia Society Alberta Chapter, PO Box 44171, Edmonton, AB, T5V 1N6.

Tribute wall - a place to share your memories and condolences

What a generous & warm person your mom (grandma) was! Soooo many good memories come to mind of the welcoming atmosphere in an already busy household, to have friends hang out & share in the fun….Seba Beach cottage time for many a summer especially. Always remember her being calm yet firm, never losing her cool. And such patience, given all the early days of budding musicians in her midst!

What a beautiful picture of her. Thank you for sharing that with us.

I wish I could be there to hug you all. She is free to fly at last. Blessings & Peace be with you.

Mo Raboud (nee Hryciw)
